PRESIDENT (2017 - Present)
What is your “Real” job position?
Organization Development Consultant, NorthCountry Federal Credit Union
How many years have you worked in the learning/development realm? 25+ years
How did you first get into the learning and development world?
My path to L&D began with a college major in elementary education. While a traditional career in the classroom wasn’t for me, my love for “teachable moments” stuck. Throughout a variety of jobs, I applied my educational background in teaching, coaching, and mentoring my colleagues. In 1988 I joined a business mentorship team, and this deepened my love of training. Following a variety of positions in L&D I currently enjoy a primary focus on leadership and organizational development.
